Summer Cardinal & Birch Trees screen print
Hand silkscreen printed art print
Summer time and the tweetin' is easy. You are looking at Summer Cardinal art print, following our cardinal friend into the long sunsets of a summer evening.
We have lots of Cardinals here all year round. I love looking out of my window and seeing their amazing scarlet red color jumping out from wherever they are, and whatever they are up to.
Summer Cardinal is a part of my Cardinal Seasons series where I am doing things a little differently, rather than making a new image for each season, I've decided to follow the same bright red fellow in the same scene, across all 4 seasons.
And here for Summer Cardinal, in honor of the softer, breezier and warmer life of summer, our little red fellow is enjoying the gathering sunset of a lovely night ahead in pinks, reds, and greens.
